Check in:
Fencers must check-in with their membership card or a letter of good standing. Membership
exceptions for foreign fencers do apply. Athletes without proof of membership must complete
competitive membership registration prior to competing.
Parents/guardians should come prepared with ONE of the following in case the fencer’s age
needs verification for eligibility purposes or submit one of the following to
information@usfencing.org:
1. A government issued photo ID with date of birth included
2. A copy of birth certificate
3. Passport
To avoid bringing this documentation, USA Fencing has an age verification process.
Current Verification Process:
An athlete can submit a copy of their birth certificate or passport to the National Office via
email (information@usfencing.org), mail or fax and they will verify the DOB in the
database. Once the date of birth has been verified, it is indicated on permanent and
temporary membership cards.

SEEDING:

RJCC:
Seeding should be based on the following order:
• National Rolling Points Standing regardless of classification
• Classification and year
• If athlete has neither National Points nor a weapon classification they are seeded on a random
basis with the other athletes in the same situation



POINTS:

RJCC:
All athletes whose USA Fencing’s membership division is in the region in which the RJCC is held will
earn regional points based on placement. Athletes fencing in an RJCC outside their region will not earn
regional points. Larger fields will award more points for placement. A percentage of athletes will earn
qualification from their rankings on the RRPS. For more information on this Regional Points formula
see the Regional Recognition Initiative Document available http://www.usfencing.org/rycresources
Up to the best 2 results in a given category will be combined to determine a fencer’s Regional Rank
each season.
There is NO trickle down for points at the Regional level. Points earned in a Regional Cadet or Junior
tournament only appear in the category in which they were earned. (For example: Junior regional
points do NOT trickle down to Cadet).
There IS trickle down for QUALIFICATION at the Regional level. Therefore, if a fencer qualifies in an
older age group and is age eligible for a younger age group, they earn qualification in that category as
well. (For example: If a fencer qualifies to the July Challenge in Juniors and is age eligible for Cadet,
he/she will also qualify in Cadet)
There are NO National Points earned at RJCC events.
Junior and Cadet National Points (NRPS) are also only awarded at NACs, the July Challenge and
Junior Olympic/National Championships.
